Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: MSC seeded onto a phosphate ceramic
Instrumented posterolateral fusion and autologous mesenchymal stem cells arranged in a phosphate ceramic.
Procedure: Instrumented posterolateral arthrodesis

Cell suspension of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) obtained from bone marrow aspirate from the patient and expanded in vitro in a specific medium enriched with platelet lysate without addition of animal products.

They used a minimum dose of 0.5 x106 CSM / kg and a maximum of 1, 5x106 CSM / kg of patient weight.

Dosage Form: Suspension cell support hydroxyapatite and calcium phosphate Route of administration: placement in the fusion bed during surgery.
